    SmartWind User Manual

    SmartWind is a kind of Business Intelligent Tool. it uses very few simple vital inputted technical data in the power industry to generate useful analysis and reports. These can help the utility providers and Regulatory Agencies to make very smart decisions about the most efficient and effective ways to improve the power sector.

    The concept is to create smart service providers in the absence of smart networks by using a technique that I may refer to as DAFSC. DAFSC stands for Data Acquisition for System Control.
    SmartWind as a concept is being utilized in real life scenario since 2014. In the meantime, it has gone through massive upgrades with thorough and intensive fine-tuning to get to what it is today. It has gained full acceptance in one of the DisCos and it is being used to generate lots of technical reports as will be seen later.
